In Grade 8, the students have been learning about the musical forms of Blues and Jazz, and how they connect culturally to the Civil Rights Movement in the US. The students have been looking at the structural differences between the two styles, and diving into the ideas and emotions they can communicate. To sow what they know and share their own opinions and thoughts, the students will be creating an original podcast. These will be shared with the community the last week of school in the Arts Showcase. Make sure you connect back to see and listen to the students’ work!
